    Appointed as assistant coach. This could be a really inspired appointment. Good luck Dicksy!

    Looks like there's a plan coming together!

    So does this mean Bilic and Dicks on the touch line?

    Astute fan-pleasing lip-service from our owners. Fans have been crying out for him for ever (with no real justification of skills and abilities). Like us all I hope he is, and becomes, a great coach in his own right. It is great for the club to appease the fans; the proof of the pudding will be in the eating though.

    It is a good feelgood factor day for the club and in this important year in our history that is just as valid as to; class coaching etc. The only harm that will, inevitable come from it is one day the legend becomes the enemy. And that's always sad for the legends of a club (a word I rarely use but he is up there with them.)

    Mixed emotions for me, great to see Dicksy on board but not sure just how good a coach he really is - and I don't want to see him tarnish his reputation. Anyway, it's done, so let's hope for the best.

    Can't help but feel bad for the ladies...

    I'm onboard with pretty much all the sentiments here - never seen him do too much when he's been a boss anywhere... so as much as this is obviously a crowd pleaser, you have to wonder about the wisdom of it in harsh business terms (I guess it depends whether success is as important as image)

    There's a lot of downsides to this... but as with everything else, I'm hoping it plays out better in reality than it does in my head.

    P.S.
    wonder what the 'big announcement concerning a first team player' the club is touting for later today...

    Could be that he has been brought in to do defensive coaching only, bit like Teddy was with the front line, Can't see him being involved with anything tactically.
